Will the pre-ban G22 work in a G23???
thanks for educatin' me!
Any Glock G22 magazine will work in the 24,35,22,23, and 27. Standard or 10 round capacity.
Whoa, I thought the Glock 22 mag would stick out in the G23?
Yeah, it will stick out but it will still work. My 32 round mags definitely stick out of my 19. That doesn't stop them from working.
In fact, you can use a G22/23 mag in a G27 too. Of course it will stick out as well. I just bought a hicap G23 for my G27, Agrip makes an extension that slides over the mag to make a grip extension. Works pretty nicely, almost turns your G27 into a G23. I am not sure if there is a similar setup for the G23.
One thing to watch for, I have heard that if you grip the portion of the magazine extening outside of the grip too hard you may cause it to feed improperly.
I had just heard that could be the casse, if you grip the magazine hard, it will definitely cant forward.
Pearce (I think) makes a spacer to fill in the gap when using G22 mags in the smaller pistols. I've tried them, but not purchased any yet.
A G27 with a G22 mag looks like a mini-me G18.
I'm a new owner of a G27 and am new to Glocks, Sub-Compacts, and the .40 caliber. That said, in my humble experience, I have personally had problems with my mint G22 Hi-cap magazine in my G27. I only say this as a warning to others. I was using Federal 165g. FMJ rounds and had 5-6 misfeeds (3 of which were consecutive) during two back-to-back 50 round sessions at the range. IMHO I believe that my pinky exerted enough force with my "regular G27" grip to cant the magazine slightly forward, enough to have possibly caused the misfeeds. I have not tried the magazine add-ons which "extend" the grip of the G27 around the base of the "exposed" magazine, but wonder whether or not they'd offer enough support along the back edge of the magazine to prevent it from jiggling around in the grip. I for one am not confident with carrying a hicap magazine for CCW for use in my G27, not with a 10% failure rate. BTW, I've had no problems with jams in my G27 using G27 magazines using the same ammunition.
I've not had problems with my only G23 mag or my two G22 mags in my G27.
I did have a 29 round mag that would make rounds dive into the feedramp if I help the mag with my non-triggerfinger hand.
It was probably from bad magazine springs- the most common glock malfunctions come from the magazine springs, and bad ammo. Yes, glocks do jam. My G31 jammed 4 times in 30 rounds due to weak springs.
Yup, just like the 20 & 30 round M16 mags stick out. And the old 20 round M14 mags, and hi cap 1911 mags, and so on......
Look at Taz10M's pic. I forget who makes that mag extension he has on, but they work. ;c
Since I believe the ammo is considered reputable, I'll definitely give my hicap G22 mag a spring change and give it another go. Especially since springs relatively inexpensive. Thanks for the suggestion.
